Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Even before they released DeSean Jackson, it was clear the Eagles were likely to select a wide receiver in the draft in May. Now it is a necessity, although the Eagles won't have to stray from their promise to select the best available player. That's because - as general manager Howie Roseman said in February at the NFL combine - every round will have a receiver the team covets. The Jackson jettison just made it more probable the Eagles will expend an early-round selection on the position.

When Howie Roseman took over the business side of the Eagles' football operations this past offseason, he became one of 10 NFL general managers to handle both player evaluations and contract negotiations. The number is down to nine after Panthers GM Marty Hurney was fired in October. The remaining eight reflect a wide array of decision-makers. There are former players such as John Elway (Broncos) and Reggie McKenzie (Raiders). There are longtime scouts who worked their way up the chain of command such as Rod Graves (Cardinals)

Jeffrey Lurie said that he was holding Howie Roseman accountable for only the 2012 season when the Eagles owner explained Monday why he was retaining the general manager. "The mistakes that were made in the 2011 draft have little or nothing to do with Howie's evaluations," Lurie said. "I think it was important for me to own up to the mistakes that were made and understand where they were coming from, and it was awfully clear. So an effort was made to streamline the entire operation.

Remember the names Mike McCoy, Jay Gruden, and Ben McAdoo. All three assistant coaches are considered candidates for head coaching jobs this offseason, but more important, and in relation to the Eagles, all three are represented by agent Bob LaMonte. When Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hired LaMonte as his agent during the 2011 offseason it is unlikely he imagined it would come in handy two years later as he prepares to help owner Jeffrey Lurie find Andy Reid's replacement.

THE THOUGHT at the time was that the Eagles did not want to be in a position where they had to draft a safety early. They had drafted for need, disastrously, near the end of Andy Reid's regime, and they did not want to do it again. That was general manager Howie Roseman's thinking when he spoke in late February at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis: "You don't want to force a position and you don't want to not take a position just because of what you have at the moment. You have to take the best player.

It is impossible to analyze the Eagles' decision to release DeSean Jackson without the requisite context, and that context is Aaron Hernandez. This is not to say that whatever Jackson did to warrant dismissal in the eyes of Jeffrey Lurie, Chip Kelly, and Howie Roseman is morally or legally equivalent to the first-degree murder charges that Hernandez faces. The reasons that the Eagles released Jackson vary, depending on which source is providing what reason, and they are aligned in a diverse array: on-field reasons and off-field reasons, gang ties reported in an explosive NJ.com story Friday, his general demeanor and work ethic and their impact on the younger players on the team, a mysterious burglary of Jackson's home in January that still has no suspects, Kelly's belief that he can find another receiver to match Jackson's production within the Eagles' offense.

DID THE EAGLES act responsibly yesterday, in moving to protect their locker room, their brand, and the team-first culture coach Chip Kelly is trying to build? Or did they panic, reacting to innuendo and conjecture, needlessly weakening a team on the verge of serious Super Bowl contention? We might not know the answer until the 2014 season is over. If that season ends with DeSean Jackson making his fourth Pro Bowl, in a new city, having engendered no further hint of off-the-field troubles, the conclusion will be that the Birds panicked.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Eagles' apparent attempts to trade DeSean Jackson raise the question of what, exactly, Chip Kelly is looking for in his wide-receiving corps. Kelly gave us some clues when he talked to reporters Wednesday at the NFL meetings. Previously, we figured we knew Kelly wanted more size than Jackson offers at 5-10, 175, though we know from watching how he used Jackson last season that Kelly isn't allergic to speed; he found a way to get Jackson a career-high 82 catches for 1,332 yards.

ORLANDO - Chip Kelly's freshman year as an NFL coach was a success, one that required some tough choices, but never the potential Eagles Nation-rattling decisions he now faces as he embarks upon his sophomore season. Kelly's second offseason can aptly be titled, "The Offseason Football and Business Collided" for the former college coach. As much as he claims that he doesn't do contracts, Kelly can't be running the show in Philadelphia - as many league insiders say he's now doing - unless he gets his hands dirty deciding upon the worth of his players.

ORLANDO, Fla. - Chip Kelly is scheduled to talk to reporters this morning at the NFC coaches' media breakfast. That, we're sure about. If the Eagles' coach, like general manager Howie Roseman on Monday, refuses to discuss DeSean Jackson, the Ritz-Carlton Orlando Grande Lakes probably should hide the butter knives from frustrated Philadelphia-area scribes. When Kelly trudges past the row of chafing dishes to his league-mandated hour with the media, fewer than 36 hours will have passed since Jackson tweeted about a conversation with the coach, one that apparently left Jackson feeling he will remain an Eagle this season.

ORLANDO - In the latest twist of "As DeSean Jackson Turns," the wide receiver called a few teammates Tuesday to tell them he was staying with the Eagles a day after he spoke with coach Chip Kelly, a source close to the situation said. Earlier in the morning, Jackson posted the following on Instagram: "Good to talk to Big Chip today . . . Say or hear what ya want . . . The picture speaks for itself. " The post was accompanied by a picture of a laughing Kelly running toward Jackson with a padded club during practice last season.

ORLANDO - The Eagles are interested in signing former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to a league source, but their medical staff needs to evaluate him before they can reach a deal. Sanchez missed last season with a torn labrum (cartilage) in his right shoulder suffered on Aug. 24, making a medical evaluation an important prerequisite before signing him. If healthy, Sanchez would fill the team's need for a veteran backup after Michael Vick signed with the Jets last week.

ORLANDO - Howie Roseman spoke about the Eagles for 33 minutes Monday without substantively answering any questions about DeSean Jackson's future. That served as evidence of the team's nebulous relationship with its Pro Bowl receiver and a reminder that there are other, significant issues on the general manager's radar this offseason. Jackson's future is the dominant topic surrounding the team during the league meetings this week, although Roseman was mum on Jackson and avoided discussing the team's plans.
